I think this is an ensatina. Based on the range and appearance. The only thing that doesn't fit is finding it in the water - apparently they are terrestrial.

The other possibility (based on size and finding it in a cold rushing stream) is that it is a torrent salamader, but the closest range of any of the torrent salamanders is the Olympic Penninsula.
